David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.


Five-Years Ago Today — New Jersey

Into the Vortex. North View Star and Jet Trails with a Bonus of a Meteor Trail. Summer Night in New Jersey. Composite of 442 images taken with a Nikon D3s camera and 16 mm f/2.8 mm Fisheye lens (ISO 800, 16 mm, f/5.6, 30 sec). Images processed with Capture One Pro, and the composite created using Photoshop CC (statistics, maximum).

Back then, I still had a lot of trees right next to the house, and one partially blocked Polaris, the North Star. Most of the trees are gone either to disease or the "mile a minute" invasive vine. I am now looking into putting some solar panels on the roof.
